Tentaka Kuni Hawk In Heavens Sake NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Review Pale, yellow-tinged color. Smoky aromas of pumpkin and squash, with hints of grilled bread, fennel and menthol. Gives a subtly sweet impression but retains good freshness. Not particularly rich, but the melting finish is clean and persistent. Made from a spring that has been famous for more than 400 years. Wine Tasting Notes A mature well-rounded flavor with a settled fragrance. Dry but with an underlying richness. Drier and lighter when chilled, and a bit fuller as it warms.

With slightly yeasty notes and roasted walnut aromas, this well rounded sake has a rich mouthfeel. Dry and crisp, the flavors are dominated by mixed nuts, fresh cut green grass and other earthier flavors. Medium-bodied, the finish is lengthy and dry; a perfect food companion. - Brewery
